MATTHIEU, PIERRE.:
London, printed by John Haviland for Godfrey Emondson, 1632.FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1632, translated by Sir Thomas Hawkins. Small 4to, 190 x 140 mm, 7½ x 5½ inches, engraved pictorial title page, dated title page to second part but register and pagination continuous, pages: (4), 299, bound in contemporary full vellum, hand lettered to spine. Most copies like ours just have the engraved title without the letterpress title, a few have just a letterpress title. Some discolouration to vellum, some light rust staining to lower cover, head of spine just slightly worn, ties lacking, short closed tear to fore - edge of front endpaper and title page, neatly repaired with no loss, signature on front endpaper, occasional small pale stain, otherwise contents clean and bright. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. The first part is a translation of "Aelius Sejanus, histoire romaine" by Pierre Matthieu. It is translated into English as a satire on the fall of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham. The second part is a translation of "Histoire des prosperitez malheureuses d'une femme cathenoise, grande seneschalle de Naples" also by Matthieu, based on a story from "De casibus illustrium virorum" by Giovanni Boccaccio. Both works are supposed to have been written by Matthieu originally to represent the rise and fall of Concino Concini and his wife, Leonora Galigai. Concino Concini, (d. 1617), was a Florentine adventurer, favourite of Marie de' Medici, queen of France, who exerted great influence after the assassination of Marie's husband, Henry IV in 1610, and succeeded th … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALILEI, Galileo
Florence, 1632 The engraved frontispiece facing the title by Stefano della Bella depicting Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus in discussion surmounted by the Medici arms appears to be a facsimile on contemporary paper; woodcut printer?'s device on title, woodcut initials, headpieces and diagrams. Contemporary vellum, Galileo and Systema Cosmica written in ink on spine; minor browning and spotting as usual. First edition of Galileo?'s statement and defence of the Copernican system of heliocentrism, which directly led to his trial for heresy in Rome in 1633. The Dialogo was designed both as an appeal to the great public and as an escape from silence. In the form of an open discussion between three friends ?- intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic ?- it is a masterly polemic for the new science.

On the author and this work, see extensively the introd. by Marcus Hellyer to the English translation (Univ. of Virginia Press, 2003): "(...) Its title, Cautio Criminalis, was generic, simply meaning a warning in a matter of criminal law. But its subtitle, or a Book on Witch Trials (seu de Processibus contra Sagas Liber), identified its real content. Unlike many books published in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, however, it did not encourage the princes to hunt, try and burn witches or instruct judges and inquisitors on how to identify witches and force them to confess. Rather, it argued that the plague of witches supposedly infesting Germany was the product of the trials themselves and urged princes to supervise trials closely, to regulate the use of torture strictly, and even to end witch trials entirely. (...) Since then the Cautio Criminalis, a cry of conscience from the very epicenter of the witch-hunts, has become know … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vincenzo Alsario della Croce
ROMAE: EX TYPOGRAPHIA GUILELMI FACCIOTTI, 1632. In 8. Dim. 22x16 cm. Pp. (8)+317+(3). Rara opera del 1632 sul Monte Vesuvio del medico Genovese Vincenzo Alsario della Croce (n. 1570). Eminente professore di medicina a Roma per più di venti anni, fu uno dei primi a scrivere sull'epilessia. Medico dei papi Gregorio XV e Urbano VIII, Alsario venne allontanato da Roma perchè "bisbetico, litigioso, millantatore soverchio e poco prudente" (Gerini 1829, p. 287). L'opera, scritta in occasione della disastrosa eruzione del Vesuvio avvenuta il 12 Dicembre 1631 è uno studio medico fisico sulle eruzioni del Vesuvio e dell'Etna e le malattie ad esso corrrelate. Alsario descrive accuratamente le eruzioni e ciò che comportano, i terremoti e le alluvioni ad esse legate spesso citando scrittori di letteratura classica e mettendole a confronto con quelle del Sinai e dell' Hecla in Islanda. Interessante la parte dedicata alle malattie scatenate a Torre Annunziata. Alla fine del volume lista delle eruzioni del Vesuvio e relativa bibliografia. Nel testo descrizione dell'eruzioni dell'Etna nel 1537 L'opera è collazionata e risultata completa. In buone condizioni. Insieme al volume un foglio manoscritto.

LEO AFRICANUS.
Lugd. Batav., Elzevir, 1632. First Elzevir printing, only volume 2, p.387 - p.800, originally published in 1550. 24mo. 800pp. (two volumes bound in one, paginated consecutively). Contemporary full brown calf, spine in 5 compartments, gilt title and decorations. Top of spine and frontcover on the hingings a bit worn.Translated into Latin from the original Italian. Overall a fine copy. Leo Africanus, born Al - Hassan ibn - Wazzani, was born a slave in Granada of African descent. Because of his outstanding literary ability (he had already written a draft of this book in Arabic when he was captured), the Medici Pope Leo X freed him, converted him to Christianity and became his patron. This book, a detailed account of Africa, its trade routes, geography, terrain and people was an exceptionally important source for information on the continent and is generally considered the first book written by a person of primarily African descent. Blockson 101 #1: "Any edition of Africanus works is rare and is the cornerstone of any collection of African history."

JONSTON, John
Apud Guilielmum Blaeu, Amsterdam, 1632. FIRST EDITION. 12mo [xii] 501 [iii]. Roman and Italic letter, woodcut initials and tail-pieces, t.p. with printer’s device of an orrery. Light age browning, otherwise a good clean copy with C17 annotations, in contemporary English calf, covers triple-ruled in blind, spine remounted, a.e.r. FIRST EDITION of Jonston’s most popular work on "admiranda" or wonders of nature organised into ten categories (heaven, earth, and topics relating to meteors, ‘fossils’ or minerals, plants, birds, quadrupeds, insects and ‘bloodless’ animals, fish, and humans). The work draws heavily from classical sources such as Aristotle, Pliny, and Seneca, but also from the more recent work of Aldrovandi, and in the section on plants includes descriptions of the flora and fauna of the New World, as well as tobacco. Each section is headed by a useful index to its contents, and the work concludes with a poem in praise of Jonston by the Bohemian poet Venceslaus Clemens. John Jonston (1603 - 1675) emigrated from Poland to Scotland in 1622 and studied natural history at St. Andrew’s for four years. He received the degree of Doctor of Physic from both Leyden and Cambridge. Despite the compact size of Thaumaturgia, his earliest work, its wide range of material prefigures his later, large-scale works on Fish, Insects, Birds, and Trees, made possible by his extensive travel through Europe and access to its libraries, as well as firsthand observation. Venceslaus Clemens (1589 - 1640?), Protestant and prolific Neo-Latin poet, was forced to leave his native Bohemia after the … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Skat Rördam. 1855). * "Das Werk stellt sich, wie auch aus der Einleitung hervorgeht, als eine verbesserte Auflage der Basler Ausgabe von Isac Natans Bibelkonkordanz vom Jahre 1581 dar. Daneben benutzte Buxtorf wohl auch die Konkordanz des Marius de Calasius, Rom 1621. Die wesentlichen Unterschiede gegenüber jener Vorlage bestehen in der Anordnung nach des Formen innerhalb eines Stammes und in der lateinischen Übersetzungen sowohl jeder Form als auch der einleitenden Erklärung des Stammes." (Prijs, Die Basler hebräischen Drucke, 235). Johs. Buxtorff, der ältere, (1564-1629) war ohne Frage der grösste Kenner des rabbinischen Schriftthums unter den Protestanten. Sein Sohn Johs. Buxtorff (1599-1664) vollendete seines Vaters Werk "Concordantiae ..." ADB III, 668. Jöcher I, 1223. Das lateinisches Titelblatt ist mit einen ornamentalen Einfassung, gezeichnet "SW" (Nagler V,443 "Unbekannter Formschneider"). Both Boxtorf and his son of the same name were professor of Hebrew at Basel University, many of their books were published by Johs. Buxtorf the Elder's son in law, Ludwig König, who in 1615 had aquired the Waldkirch printing office with their rich store of types from the Froben Press, the previous owners. … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Ambon massacre] [Skinner, John].
The portrait of a British merchant being tortured; the Ambon Massacre and the beginnings of the annexation of Dutch New Amsterdam. 1632. London. Purslowe and Nathaniell Newberry. In 8vo (182 mm x 131 mm). frontispiece + 5 ff. + 38 + 1 ff. + 20 + 1 ff. + 34. Nineteenth century mottled calf by Riviere & Son, rebacked with most of original spine retained, with original lettering pieces on spine. Very good copy internally. An important work, relates the episode whereby the Dutch Governor of Amboyna had a number of English merchants tortured under interrogation regarding a suspected conspiracy to overthrow the fortress. The Portuguese first discovered Amboyna in 1510, although it was not until 1521 that a settlement was founded. In 1600 the Dutch, aided by the natives and encouraged by an apparently ruthless Portuguese treatment towards the natives, secured the island. In 1615 a British settlement was also founded on the other side of the island, where it enjoyed a short life until 1623, when the massacre occurred. Several of the Englishmen did not survive. This work had influence on the start of the Second Anglo-Dutch War and the annexation of Dutch New Amsterdam, present-day New York, was justified with reference to this event. The Relation is comprised of four parts, each with a separate title page. Illustrated with a crude image of a man ?"presumably an English merchant- being tortured by 6 men and two child, burning his feet and armpits with candles, and another one opening him, whilst he is crucified.

London: Printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, And Are To Be Sold At His Shop, , 1632.. London: Printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, And Are To Be Sold At His Shop, 1632. Second Folio Edition. Bound in full leather, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, red morocco spine label, raised bands. This copy has a presentation book-plate for the Century Association Library, New York City, donated by "Wm. M. Allen." For reference to Allen's donation see the Association's 1872 Yearbook, "The Library and Art collections have received some important accessions during the year.... and it has been enriched in particular by the valuable collection presented by Mr. William M. Allen." There is a short entry for a Shakespeare Second Folio in their 1879 Catalogue, likely to be this copy. It is estimated that no more than 1000 copies of the Second Folio were printed, and it is believed less than 200 copies are still in existence today. In facsimile is Tempest p. 1/2 , 17/18, 19/ "Two Gentlemen from Verona " p. 20; "Richard III" 173/4; final page of Macbeth and first page of Hamlet 171/2; "Othello" p. 351/2 & 359/; "Anthony and Cleopatra" p. 360 to 364, 3; Cymbeline. The Shakespeare Folios "have an aura of book magic about them. For a bibliophile it is a volume devoutly to be wished for and rarely attained; to a library it is a crowning jewel of a collection… Shakespeare, indeed, is a name to conjure with. No lengthy explanations are needed; he is simply the most distinguished author in the English language" (Legacies of Genius, 36).

Born in Padua 1555, Magini studied astronomy from an early age. He was appointed Lecturer in Astronomy at the University by the Senate of Bolgna in 1588; [ he received the chair in preference to Gallileo]. As a cartographer, Magini's life's work was the preparation of "Italia "or the "Atlante geografico d'Italia ".This was intended to include maps of every Italian region with exact nomenclature and historical note and it was eventually printed posthumously by his son Fabio in 1620. He was the first Italian to produce an Atlas of his native country. A major project, the production (begun in 1594) proved expensive and Magini assumed various additional posts in order to fund it, including becoming tutor in mathematics to the sons of Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, a major patron of the arts and sciences. Magini dedicated the atlas to The Duke of Mantua, who had assisted him with this project helping him obtain cartographical material from the various sovereigns ruling the different Italian states at that time.
